Entropy

They say time increases entropy

and that the longer you wait,

the more things get mixed up,

misplaced,

discombobulated,

thrown out of whack.

A wine glass shatters

as it falls.

It cannot fall back into being

and piece itself together.

.

But people can.

And I think it’s one of the most amazing things

about Physics.

The the brains we used

to discover the laws of nature

are not defined by them.

.

That we can always fall back together.
